From the Pro ~ September 2022
Summer was here and now is “almost” gone. As we look back at the year, we can at least say we’ve had some fantastic days to Golf and the course has been superb!
August was a fantastic month for events. We had our Member-Guest, Club Championships, Bucks & Does Couples Cup & our Glow Golf event.
Congratulations to Sally Sheerer for winning the Ladies Club Championship; Sally is now a 3X winner and back-to-back Champion! Also, congratulations to our 17-year-old, Derry Area Golf star, Hunter Jurica for winning his first Men’s Club Championship. Hunter battled Dave Smail down the stretch, recording a 32 on the back nine of the final round and a clutch up and down on #18 to seal the deal!
Now, we look forward to our remaining events and the wonderful foliage in our area. Our 5-Person Scramble is already sold out, but our Cross-Country event on September 17 will be 18-holes this year and give you a different take on the Golf Course
Oh! Don’t forget it’s that time of the year again where we Sean tries to raise money for the Fold’s of Honor foundation. This is year 8 for Sean, raising over $110,000. In 2020 & 2021, Ligonier Country Club was recognized as a Top Performer for donations and looks to be one again in 2022! Sean will begin his marathon on Tuesday, September 13.-see flier in Newsletter
